Launch of the Power Kiosk project
The Power Kiosk project addresses the most pressing needs of rural off-grid communities in the target countries of Ethiopia, Kenya and Madagascar, with a focus on three main areas:
– Sustainable energy supply at the level of households, SMEs and communities
– Reduction of poverty, and improvement of health and education
– Business empowerment, employment and capacity building
The project will achieve these goals by establishing 160 energy kiosks (40 in Ethiopia, 40 in Kenya and 80 in Madagascar) that provide renewable and reliable energy at an affordable price.
